Off to the desert!

The second day introduces us to the desert climate of the south, as well as the special flora and fauna of this area. Dalanzadgad is located at the end of the Altai mountain range, and functions as the entrance gate to the Gobi. Yolin-Am is a ravine nearby, which fascinates both through its geological features as well as its rich bird population. Especially famous are the lammergeier living there. As a geographical curiosity, there's a little mini glacier at the ground of the ravine.
